I don't know if this is too late, but I had a simple unique use for Citrix I 
wanted to share.
A few years back I had a client with a small farm that wanted to give 
demonstrations of his software to his customers, but didn't want to pay for 
WebEx or similar products.
I created an "Instructor" account and wrote a logon script that I assigned to 
several locked down "Student" accounts.  To make it extra easy, the Students 
logged on through the Web Interface.
During the Studentâs logon their logon script first looked to see if the 
Instructor had an open session.  If that was true then it would force the 
Student to shadow the Instructor's session with no mouse or keyboard input.  If 
the Instructor didn't have a session, it would terminate the Student's session. 
 The audio portion of the demonstration was delivered by a conference call.
